The debut issue of US Mint State Quarters came in 1999. The coveted circulation series helped launch a new era of coin collecting by average Americans. With each state getting its own, unique reverse design on the quarters issued into circulation, the State Quarters Program generated interest in coin collecting among a new generation of Americans as everyone sought to get their own states quarter design, and the more aggressive sought out one of each of the designs in the series. Today, you can buy 1999 US Mint Proof Quarter Sets online at Provident Metals.
In 1999, the United States Mint issued the first of five designs in the State Quarters Program. These coins were circulating, commemorative quarters with the standard US cupro-nickel alloy of 91.67% copper and 8.33% nickel. The coins became immensely popular with collectors and even generated enough interest to bring new generations into the fold when it came to coin collecting.
On the obverse of coins in the 1999 US Mint Proof Quarters Set, you will find John Flanagans portrait of President George Washington in left-profile relief. Inscriptions include UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, LIBERTY, IN GOD WE TRUST, and QUARTER DOLLAR. The reverse of the coins features varying designs honoring each state.
The State Quarters Program was so popular with Americans that it generated two follow-up collections. In 2009, a one-year District of Columbia and US Territories Program issued circulation quarters with designs for Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam, the US Virgin Islands, and the Northern Mariana Islands. After both of these came the America the Beautiful Series in 2010. This collection featured 5 oz silver bullion coins and circulation quarters.
These 1999 US Mint Proof Quarter Sets come with coins honoring Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Georgia, and Connecticut. The coins are housed together in a hard plastic case with proof visuals that include frost-like designs and mirrored fields.
